Spitzbergen The polar bear is most famous victim of the vanishing ice. I came across this big male tearing a seal to pieces for lunch. It is ironic that the biggest and most feared land predator on our planet is so vulnerable. Polar bears cannot survive without ice to provide a platform for them to hunt seals, and the seals cannot survive without ice to build dens for their pups.

    Yawn. Another NON scientific warmist attempt to evangelize….

    The pictures are wonderful though….

  • Too bad

    What a shame you weren’t around as the Ice Age (or the more recent Little Ice Age) ended. You could have rung the global warming alarms and ensured that nothing happened to change the Ice Age climate. Come to think of it, you would have been useful during the entire 4.5 billion years of Earth’s climate change history. What a shame, indeed.
